Winter song



   I have recently bought some gilding flakes so I am giving them a try. I thought the silver flakes would make a good cold and frosty scene, so I chose this image called 'Let your heart sing' from Chocolate Baroque. Having applied the flakes I coloured the bird with a black Promarker pen and the background using distress inks. I also used Promarkers to colour the wording at the foot of the image. I then matted it onto navy mirri card.
   I attached two lengths of blue ribbon and one of white ribbon to the back of heft hand side of pale blue card. I then plaited the ribbons and secured them to the lower back of the card. This was then matted onto white card and narrow blue peel offs used around the edge of the blue card.
   Having attached the image to the card I created a stamped sentiment which I attached with foam pads.

   I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
   Cute Card Thursday - cold and frosty
   Eureka Stamps - blue and bling
   Love To Create - blue with bling
